Our Mission and Commitment for Quality Pet Care

Since 1961, the award-winning Montclair Veterinary Hospital team has shown commitment to excellence in helping animals to have a healthy life. Dr. Gary Richter, Medical Director, leads a team of professionals who practice cutting-edge and progressive medicine integrating education into the overall wellness plan. The team at MVH is dedicated to providing the best quality medical care and the highest level of customer service available. From preventative care to sick pets, holistic alternatives, and geriatric wellness, Montclair Veterinary Hospital provides everything you need to help your furry, feathered, and scaly pets live long and healthy lives:

  • The same compassionate and professional medical and dental care we would provide for our own animal companions.
  • The information and resources necessary to help you make educated decisions about your pet’s health care. We want you to understand your pet’s health care plan and feel comfortable with the treatment of your beloved pet. That is our priority.
  • Ongoing education for our staff. We insist that our veterinary team is expertly trained with the most current medical knowledge and technology to provide the best care possible for your pet.

Accreditation

Montclair Veterinary Hospital is accredited by the American Animal Hospital Association. Here is AAHA’s description of its accreditation program:

In the 1930s, a group of veterinarians created standards to help bring common guidelines, practices and procedures to the veterinary profession. The American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA), along with a group of veterinary experts, developed the AAHA Standards of Accreditation as benchmarks of excellence. The AAHA Accreditation Program helps veterinary hospitals incorporate these standards of quality care and procedures into their day-to-day practices, ultimately raising the level of care being provided to companion animals while also increasing loyalty among veterinary staff members. Being AAHA-accredited also provides a way for veterinary hospitals to show their commitment to excellence in their communities and to their clients.
